The Cocke County boy attacked from his neighbor's pit bull will soon start a new chapter in his life, in a new home built from hundreds of volunteers.

On Friday, Brandon Williams, 11, will move into a new 1,200 square foot home.

"More than 200-250 different volunteers to get it to the phase that it's in," said the project's organizer Josh Dunn.

This Thursday, Williams got a sneak peak inside his new residence.

"The carpet, the whole upstairs, the field goals on my walls, the air hockey table. Can't leave a little thing out... or a big thing," Williams smiled.

Everything in North Newport was all donated from churches and the Cocke County community. That includes Brandon's massive new bedroom, with a custom-made Tennessee Titans painting, an air hockey table, and a big screen TV.

Brandon's father, Tony, said looking forward to a new home will help his son move on from what happened.

"It's like you're in a dream; it's awesome. There are no words to describe it," Tony Williams said.

"Just a final story for a happy ending for Brandon and his family," Dunn added.

The 11-year-old is quite grateful too.

"Thanks to everyone who helped build me a new house," Brandon said.

A ribbon cutting is set for Friday afternoon. That's when Brandon can officially start moving into his new home.
